Police Chief asking for leadership council members

Winter Haven, Florida - Winter Haven Police Chief Gary Hester is seeking applicants, who are over the age of 18, to participate in the inaugural Winter Haven Police Leadership Council.

The Council will consist of approximately 20 members who will serve voluntarily and meet bi-monthly with Chief Hester and agency members for a total of six meetings. Participants will be asked to complete assignments and provide feedback on Department operations.

Members of the Council will experience hands-on activities over the course of the six weeks while gaining a much better understanding of what it takes to operate a Municipal Police Department.

Council members will participate in tours at the Polk County Jail book-in, Central County Jail and the Courthouse.

Participants will be required to serve specified time frames at the Sheriff's Emergency Communications Center and complete a Ride-A-Long with an officer. Participants will be a valuable community resource in advising on topics that affect the agency.

Those interested in serving on the Police Leadership Council can request an application by calling 863-291-5858, ext. 2351. Applications can also be obtained by going to the Department website at www.WinterHavenPD.com and clicking the link on the homepage. Applications must be submitted no later than Nov. 10, 2011 to be considered for the upcoming council that will begin on Tuesday, Jan. 24, 2012.

A complete schedule of activities will be sent along with the application.
